Paper Pumpkin by Stampin Up!


Again sorry it's been so long since I've posted.  I'm crafting but my home PC is XP and it's not replaced yet - and the iPad, while cool, not so friendly with the blog posting!

I'd like to invite my friends to join me in the Paper Pumpkin experience.  It's a monthly paper crafting kit.  You get a project that will take you less than 30 minutes to complete.  It comes with a small set of stamps each month.  I think it's going to be a blast!

You can sign up at my personal Paper Pumpkin page:

Or you can go to my demonstrator site www.chrisi.stampinup.net

More soon - honest! - Chrisi

Storybook Friends - cutesy but still ....

Hello, This is a card I made from a Stampin Up clear set in the current catalog. I colored them with colored pencils and blended a bit. 

At first I thought it too cutesy but then it made such great cards .... how could I argue? Enjoy - Chrisi

OMG Remember Me?

Hello there,  hopefully someone will see this!  It's been a long time and I'm sorry.  I'm a terrible blogger!

Here is a card I made for my co-workers.  It's stamped with a new Impression Obsessions stamp and colored with pencils.  - Enjoy - Chrisi

News Flash - Valentines!

Hello again,

I've been crafting but not posting.  Bad Blogger!

This is a valentine card I made this year - with nice valentine stuff inside - but this stamp set is very versitile.  It's made by Paper Smooches and the background paper is from a HAPPY DAYS set.

Of course I got it all from Angela's Happy Stamper.

Happy Day!


This is another card I made at the Cabin Weekend!  It's made with INCHIES and a black and white theme.  It's a lot of layers and setup up but creates a nice card. 

To get the dots only on the top and bottom of the matted card I had to run it thru both directions w/ the Big Shot and embossin folder.  SO worth the effort tho -

I love the result.

Enjoy - Chrisi

I'm Back .... are you there?

Hello Friends,

I've been missing and I'm sorry.  I have been crafting and thought I'd share a few things I've either made or are making lately.  If anyone is out there ... leave a comment and I'll send a little surprise to one or two.

I'm making a scarf with the new Starbella yarn - which is very netty.

You use the non finished side to crochet from and it gets kind of lacy as you chain down the yarn.  Cool huh?
These cards are goodies I made at a recent weekend at the Scrapbooking Cabin in WVa.  It was a great time and very productive.

Hope to post more of what i made that weekend in the next few days.

Soon - Chrisi

It became a scarf....

Hello, I made one granny square to see if I could learn how.  So then I wanted to practice.  I made eight.

I learned to connect them and my aunt suggested that I go around w/ a single crochet to finish it off.  GREAT idea!  That made it look finished.

I think that for my first, it came out darned good.  I used tutorials on You Tube by Mikey of The Crochet Crowd.  Great knitting and crochet patterns.
